But, am I the only one who sees a negative backlash coming from this action? Don't misunderstand - I am thrilled a bishop finally took a stand besides just mouthing some pro-life words.
But due in part to its own inaction on important moral issues, the Church has lost so much of its moral teaching authority in recent years. I guess I see a lot of nastiness being hurled at it by the pro-abortion politicians. I hope any backlash that comes will be of short duration.
Certainly our Church will be made stronger by this action.
